Call for Papers

Punk & Post-Punk is a peer-reviewed journal aimed at the international academic and professional communities engaged with punk and post-punk subcultures. It explores the concepts of ‘alternative’, ‘independent’ and ‘do it yourself’ that were established during the punk explosion and developed through the ensuing post-punk era.

Article submissions:

We invite researchers, teachers and practitioners of punk and post-punk, as well as those from related disciplines, to contribute to Punk & Post-Punk. We welcome papers exploring punk’s impact on the wider culture beyond music, including the arts, ethnography, sociology, politics, fashion, history, musicology and pedagogy. We particularly encourage papers discussing regional and international differentiation and contemporary developments in punk and post-punk subcultures. Articles should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in length. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

- Etymology and Language
Genre Definition and Development
- Antecedents and ‘proto-punk’ influences
- Practices of production
- Art and design strategies
- Fashion, aesthetics and style
- Musicology
- Politics, community, gender, class and race issues
- Transgression and subcultural opposition
